SYSC 3600 – Assignment #8
1/. (a) What are
ω
N
,
ζ
, and
k
for the system that you modeled in question 2 of assignment
#1?
Give the units for each of the expressions that you come up with. Are these units
what they should be?
(b) Assuming that
R
1
= 1,
R
2
= 99,
C
= 0.1F, and
L
= 0.2H, is the system overdamped,
underdamped, or critically damped?
How will it respond if the input voltage is zero and
the output voltage is initially 24V?
2/.
This question assumes the classic cart with spring and damper. The graph below
illustrates how the cart responds when it is
pulled 10 cm from its equilibrium position
and released. If the cart weighs 2kg, what are the values of
spring’s spring constant and
the damper’s damping coefficient?
